Friday Funny and The Suspense is Killing Me

Hey, guess what? It’s Faaaaa-riday! Friday, Friday, Friday…

Hmmm, I’m trying to think of interesting things to tell you about that happened this week, but to be honest, it was rather uneventful. I basically worked, ate, and slept. And wrote a lot…Yeah, riveting, I know.

Probably the most exciting thing that happened this week took place in my make believe world. I’ve officially reached the “bang” chapters in my manuscript. Woo-hoo!

At long last, I’ve pulled the first thread to unravel all the suspense and mystery I’ve been weaving since chapter one. The you-know-what has finally hit the fan. Everything my two main characters thought they knew is on the brink of destruction.

Dun, dun, dunnnnn 😉

I’ve actually been so nervous about writing these chapters, I’ve felt sick to my stomach most of the week. When I begin to work on them, my brain short circuits for a second and my heart starts to dance a crazy jig. I usually have to stop, take a deep breath, and center myself before I dive into the madness.

As overwhelming as it’s been, it’s also been a lot of fun. Like, A LOT of fun. I just love writing suspense and drama and action and…Ahhh!

*deep breath*

Anyway, for today I chose two Friday Funnies. Well, one is funny and one is a great quote that I couldn’t resist sharing with you. This first one is dedicated to my endless daydreaming as I plot out the next few whirlwind chapters.

Don’t even ask me how I haven’t seen it yet. It was on my “to-do” list and…yeah. It never got done. Whoops! Please don’t yell at me too much. 😉
